Falsely Accused

Then I heard a voice from heaven shout, "Our God has shown his saving power, and his kingdom has come! God's own Chosen One has shown his authority. Satan accused our people in the presence of God day and night. Now he has been thrown out!  Our people defeated Satan because of the blood of the Lamb and the message of God. They were willing to give up their lives.  The heavens should rejoice, together with everyone who lives there. But pity the earth and the sea, because the devil was thrown down to the earth. He knows his time is short, and he is very angry."  When the dragon realized that it had been thrown down to the earth, it tried to make trouble for the woman who had given birth to a son.  But the woman was given two wings like those of a huge eagle, so that she could fly into the desert. There she would escape from the snake and be taken care of for a time, two times, and half a time.  The snake then spewed out water like a river to sweep the woman away.  But the earth helped her and swallowed the water that had come from the dragon's mouth.  This made the dragon terribly angry with the woman. So it started a war against the rest of her children. They are the people who obey God and are faithful to what Jesus did and taught.

Revelation 12:10-17

It is a terrible thing to be falsely accused!  It still upsets me to remember the time when I was falsely accused of stealing a small bottle of breath freshener from a pharmacy near my home.  I was only 16 years old, but the memory remains more than a half century later!  

When the Devil accuses me before God the accusations are not false!  He is not lying when he tells God that I am guilty of sin and deserve to spend eternity in Hell!  I might wish to declare that I am innocent, but that would be a lie!

What is true is this: Jesus gave His Perfect Life to die for me, so that I might not suffer the eternal consequences of my sin!  If Jesus is my Lord and my Savior, the charges against me, no matter how extreme are irrelevant!  

Don't spend your energy trying to defend yourself against the accusations of Satan.  You see, it really doesn't matter if they are true or false!  Jesus paid for all of your sin and is, according to a popular Christian song from many years ago, "MY LAWYER IN HEAVEN."

If you are falsely accused, Jesus will vindicate you.  And if you are accurately accused of sin, Jesus will forgive you!  

Cast your cares on Jesus and trust Him for everything in your life!  He has never failed anyone who does that!

"Lord Jesus, You are an amazing Lord and Savior and must be praised Now and Forever!  Amen."
